CALVARY KIDS ON CAMPUS
SUNDAY 9AM & 11AM

Our weekend services are designed with children in mind! In Early Childhood, your child will be cared for in a safe, clean, age-appropriate environment by loving, screened adults. These adults will nurture your child and actively share God’s love with them. Check-in is located downstairs in the Early Childhood area.

  • Nursery (birth-25 months):  Children will be read stories, enjoy music, age-appropriate toys, and cared for in a loving and calm way

  • Preschool (26 months-TK): Children will interact with others their age while dancing, singing, listening to Bible stories, doing crafts, and enjoying our outdoor classroom
 
Have a new baby, or are you expecting?
We’d love to welcome you and provide helpful information about the Nursery. Please email Elaina White at elaina.white@calvarywestlake.org.
 
Planning to visit Calvary Westlake for the first time? Click HERE to make our Calvary Kids check-in process quicker on Sunday morning!
 
Speed up your check-in on Sunday morning and never misplace the security pick-up code again by using mobile check-in. Download the Calvary Westlake app from either the Apple App Store for iPhone/iPad or the Google Play Store for Android phones and then check in from home up to 2 hours ahead of time. Scan the barcode on your phone in the lobby and the labels will print.
 

SAFETY AND SECURITY

In children’s ministry, the safety and security of every child is extremely important to us. Each of our leaders and volunteers has been through an orientation process and has been screened to work with your child. Your child will be cared for and taught God’s Word in a safe, loving, and encouraging environment.

So that we have the most updated information on your child, we ask all families to update their profile in Calvary Connection. In the event that we need to reach you during the church service, we will use the cell phone number of the person you selected at check-in.

In the event of an emergency all of our staff, leaders and volunteers are trained in our emergency procedures. These procedures include working with the Calvary security team and being aware of the evacuation plans for our facility. 

VOLUNTEER WITH CALVARY KIDS
ON SUNDAY MORNINGS

Volunteers make Calvary Kids come to life each week! There are so many ways you can help make kids feel loved and accepted here at Calvary Westlake. We’d love to talk with you personally to help you find the right fit! We also invite parents to serve with their children because we believe it is important to model serving and invest in the faith of their children.
